The NFL Network only a select few have it, and with this game on Saturday Night only a select few will want it.

The surgery is to fix his shoulder, but the scar word will forever remain scratched on his forehead.
The Playoffs start in a few weeks, and the Seahawks may be the hottest team by the time they arrive, after a slow start they have secured another division title, and are playing their best football at the right time of the year.

Believe it or not this could be a key battle for the playoffs as the Browns can put distance between themselves and the rest of the bunch for the 6th and final playoff spot, while the Bills within one game of that precious 6th spot, with tiebreaker in hand.

Two weeks ago they were one play away from beating the Patriots, now they will be on the wrong end of the stick as they end up being the first win for the dreadful Dolphins. The Dolphins have looked worse then ever the last two weeks, but the Ravens are shot, 7 straight losses, and a coach’s head on the chopping block, equal a team about to mail it in.
The Patriots are classless and disgusting in every sense of the word, with a coach who may indeed be the world’s biggest asshole.

Look for the Pats to be rolling up the score, as they try to embarrass the Jets as much as possible.

Brett Favre is a true wonder in every sense of the word, playing at age of 38 like he did when he was a NFL MVP at 28. Look for another special game from the legend as he carves up the pathetic Rams, wile the Packers underrated defense feasts on the Rams unimaginative depleted offense.
After a hiccup in Houston, the Buccaneers benefit from the return of Jeff Garcia to clinch the NFC South as they face a Falcons team whose best QB is in black and white stripes, whose current QB was selling insurance and reporting from the Louisville sideline, while their Coach is running out the door like the Three Stooges after a 13-game tenure.

The Cowboys love to hammer the Eagles whenever they can and with an Eagles team all but out of it, the Cowboys must be licking their chops. Look for huge games from Tony Romo who plays catch all game with Terrell Owens, who gets even more pleasure out of burying his former teammates.
Sing-along time: Its beginning to look allot like Christmas, everywhere you go the Lions are heading for 6-10, and the fans are calling for Matt Millen’s head again. All Matt Millen wants for Christmas is another WR yes another WR, gee if he only picked Joe Thomas the Lions fans may have a Merry Christmas. Chargers win going away.
The Giants know how to beat the Redskins and beat the Redskins they will again as they close in on the 5th seed in the NFC Playoffs, with their 10th win. Not bad after looking dreadful the first 10 quarters of the season. Look for them to have a field day as they make a Sunday Night statement.
When they met in Chicago, Adrian Peterson I should say the Vikings Adrian Peterson had a break out game leading the Vikings to an upset win that helped turnaround their season.
